  • Title: Tararua Breeding Centre : On Farm Collection
    Descriptive info: On Farm Semen Collection Information.. Semen collection can be carried out on your farm.. We can do single bulls or mobs of bulls for testing for sale, pre mating checking or for processing their semen into straws for AI use or insurance.. The facilities that are required are any set of Cattle yards or Cow shed.. We can work in nearly all facilities that you would normally use to work your cattle.. We prefer to use an in season cow/heifer of comparable size to the bull for collections as this makes it easier, for us, the bull, and the cow/heifer.. If an in season cow/heifer is not available then a quiet female will be required for collecting.. If the cow and bull are moderately quite, and the cow is on heat, we tend not to restrain the cow.. We get them into a smallish yard and walk around with them to collect the semen.. This makes the job quick and easy for us all.. To enable us to check the quality of the semen and to start the initial processing if you require semen to be frozen we will need a dry covered area with power.. This is ideal but not essential as some yards do not have power available.. We can work around any cow shed or yard but we will need notice if you do not have power available at the site.. Restrictions for on farm collected semen.. This semen can be sold but its movement is restricted.. It can not go to Ambreed or LIC and this includes their technicians tanks..

  • Title: Tararua Breeding Centre : Bull Evaluation
    Descriptive info: Bull Evaluation.. Bull fertility, or breeding soundness is the single most important factor to be taken into account when selecting a bull.. The primary components of bull fertility are LIBIDO (eagerness to mate), MATING ABILITY, PENILE SOUNDNESS and SEMEN QUALITY.. Tararua Breeding Centre and Totally Vets Feilding offers a BREEDING SOUNDNESS EVALUATION service.. This is a humane, comprehensive assessment of all of the above factors.. The procedure is an invaluable management aid in confirming the breeding soundness of stud or paddock bulls prior to sale, or before being turned out for the mating season.. The evaluation consists of several parts.. Anatomical Soundness.. This involves a physical examination of locomotor and reproductive organs, including palpation of the testicles and measurement of scrotal circumference.. Libido.. This gives an indication of the bull s eagerness to mate (libido), and his ability to mount the teaser.. An in-oestrus teaser cow is brought into the yards.. (For a large number of bulls, the teaser cow is restrained in a specially designed portable crate.. ) The bull is introduced to the teaser and is allowed to mount, and the semen is collected into an artificial vagina.. There is obviously a risk, at this time, that the bulls may start fighting prior to, or immediately after testing.. To help reduce this risk, we advise that bulls be hungry on  ...   morphology.. Each semen sample must satisfy our minimum standards for each of these tests before the bull is passed fertile.. There are several factors that can negatively affect the quality of semen collected on a particular day.. For example bulls that have been ridden the day before, have been fighting, or have had an injury or sickness in the recent past, may not work or have poor semen quality on testing day.. It is therefore not possible to fail , or predict the fertility of a bull based on one isolated semen sample, assuming he passed all other facets of the test.. For this reason, bulls that do not meet our standards on their first test do not fail on that day, but are retested at a later date.. Facilities Required.. The examination can be carried out in most stock yards.. All bulls must be healthy.. Stressful management practices such as dehorning should not be carried out within 6 weeks prior to the testing.. A QUIET in-oestrus female must be available for the test.. (or several, if a larger number of bulls is to be done.. ) We will arrange a synchronisation programme to ensure we have a teaser female on heat at the required time.. 240 volt power and a clear bench are required within easy reach of the collection area..
